SOUND

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - GG CHOICE -

If looks are any­thing to go by, you would hear only Metallica be­ing played on the Xboom. But looks can be de­ceiv­ing and this sys­tem works well even when you are lis­ten­ing to the soul stir­ring voice of Kather­ine Jenk­ins or the wiz­ardry of A R Rah­man. In fact, there is an In­dia pre­set on the equaliser. The sound is a bit par­tial to bass, but you can tweak that if needed. At the highs, we no­ticed a bit of vi­bra­tion in the speak­ers. This is very rare though, and limited to some types of mu­sic. The bass, too, can be a bit flat here and there, not re­ally push­ing the lim­its. But this can be reme­died with the Bass Blast op­tion. Over­all, we thought the XBoom per­formed well across the fre­quency spec­trum.
